I have always loved this show, however it seems to fly under the radar somewhat.

The 1st set is terrific, Alabama/Promised Land to start things of very nicely. The FOTD is one of my favorites, Bobby's licks are unique. Later in the set, High time is superbly done and, for me, is a top-5 version. Ramble on Rose is great and Lazy Lightning/Supplication is also a favorite version for me, and the Lost Sailor > Saint is almost perfect.

Set 2 is even better, A great UJB kicks it off, the Jam is played very niceley. The Prophet>Eyes is very tight and the transition jam is spot on. After drums comes a superb Space>Truckin>Stella that will knock your socks off. The Stella, is again, One of my favorites, the closing jam is ecstatic. And to round it all off, a nice, rocking, Round N Round> JGB with a US Blues Encore.

If your looking for a great show that is overlooked, i would recommend this one for you.
